Golden Quail Egg Sandwich


  • Quail eggs
  • Kataifi pastry
  • Gold leaf
Keens curry mayonnaise
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 20ml white wine vinegar
  • 5g Dijon mustard
  • 250ml grape seed oil
  • Keens curry powder


  • Whisk yolks, mustard and vinegar together, then add oil a little at a time to form an emulsion. When required, take a little mayonnaise and add a teaspoon or more of the curry powder to taste and whisk through.
  • Take balls of kataifi pastry and press them flat. Line them into a mini muffin tray as you would with regular pastry. Line the insides with foil, fill with rice and blind bake for 15–20 minutes, or until golden. Allow to cool.
  • Bring a saucepan of water to the boil and add quail eggs. Simmer for 2 minutes, then remove and refresh in cold water. Cool and peel.
  • To assemble, add a little dollop of mayonnaise into the base of the nest, then place the quail egg. Carefully garnish with gold leaf over the top of the egg.
